Iím planning a trip over Armstrong Col to climb Colosseum Mountain and Mt. Perkins this summer. I want to know how far I can expect to drive my stock F250 4x4 before I start hiking.
A maintained dirt road goes past the Sawmill Pass TH and becomes an unmaintained 4WD road near Scotty Spring. The USGS map and Google satellite photos show the 4WD road ending in Armstrong Canyon above 8,500í. Andy Martin got his 2WD Honda to 8,000í in 2008. Does anybody know whether erosion and rock fall (especially in spring 2017) have destroyed the road, or will it be easy in my truck? Thanks!
Thanks, Bob. Somebody I know on summitpost hiked it last May. Itís probably good to 8,070í and maybe even 8,300í. I think Iíll contact the 4WD club a few weeks before I go. And, yes, I have a F250 4WD.
